think the world will look like. it's fascinating. it shows china on the rise, the west in decline and china overtaking the united states in size of economy by the year 2030. here are the key findings of the new intel report. it's interesting reading. a majority of the world's population by 2030 will be out of poverty for the first time in world history. there will be wars over food and water and natural resores. populations will continue to rise and there will be recurring global economic crises but when you think about this, you think about how far we're going here. you've got asia, china in particular will be dominant. it will be stronger than its been anytime since middleages. there will be no more pax americana as its known. china will be a big driver and india will be growing like china is today. they talk about how the world is changing. it's like no other time since the french revolution. remember in the late 18th century, the industrial revolution, except it's happening more quickly. it's taking a tenth of the time for china and asia to rise quickly. let me read to you som

for the group. he was promoted second-in-command earlier this year. >>> back to the economy now, china apparently going on an american spending spree. a chinese company agreed to buy a big chunk of insurance giant aig for more than $4 billion after the company got a huge bailout during the u.s. financial crisis. that is not the only bargain that china is picking up from u.s. taxpayers lately. stuart varney on this morning, head of "varney & company" on fox business network. good morning, stuart. good to see you. >> good morning, martha. martha: they're gobbling up our assets in many ways . what do you make of it. >> they are spending the money they have got buying american assets cheap. you mentioned aig. a chinese company is paying $4 billion for aig's plane leasing business. aig remember got $189 billion as a bailout fund that was back in september of 2008. the taxpayers still are the largest shareholder in aig. we sold the plane leasing business to china cheap. second item, a 123 batteries, americans taxpayers gave that company $249 million in grants and another 250 million in tax s
't an accord in congress. >> we will always have china. manufacturing pmi data from last night is the best in 21 months. can we finally say the chinese economy has been stabilized. >> but of course, we start in washington. as you know, congress comes back today. the house gaveling into session now with legislative business starting at 10:00 a.m. the senate returns at 11:00 a.m. eastern. there are only a few hours left to get a deal done. eamon? >> you're already hearing people talk the way they talk on new year's day. a lot of people wish they could go back in time and do things differently. that's the way people are talking in washington about this fiscal cliff. feeling as if this thing suddenly got off the rails. take a listen to mitch mcconnell last night talking about the pace of the negotiations here and the frustration that he's experienced going through all of this over the weekend. take a listen. >> now, i'm concerned about the lack of urgency here. like we all know we're running out of time. this is far too much at stake for political gamesmanship. we need to protect the american
energy policy, trade with china, reregulation of wall street. and now this, taxing all those jobs creators, all those small businesses. i don't know why you would want to invest in this country now. gerri: let me ask you this. the congressional budget office has out its numbers. if the fiscal cliff hits they say u.s. gdp would shrink by half a percentage point and that unemployment will rise to over 9%. do you think they have the rights or are they just too conservative? will it be worse? >> if we actually went over the cliff we would be subtracted from domestic demand over $600 billion. that is about four percentage points in gdp. most economists were forecasting in the first half of next year hardly 2 percent growth. if you subtract 4% to spending from that year and a recession that is much deeper. the cbo tense and not be alarmist because they say what they are partisan, but congress read it paycheck, and they don't want to say congress is being irresponsible and thrusting the economy into the next great depression. gerri: then know whether paycheck comes from. did you know tha
interest rates for a long time globally as well, and i think you also have encouraging data points in china, stabilization in europe and the u.s. at 2.7% gdp growth is a little stronger to handle this, so that's why i think you want to be buying on this. >> everybody wants to buy. so many people -- you want to be bullish, but these guys in washington, and gals in washington, give you so little reason to actually be bullish. you're right. the corporate sector you know, loaded with cash, fundamentals turning positive. >> but this is the big difference from last year, last summer where the economy was so fragile. we were in such a fragile state last suggest so it was easy to tip us over. now we're a little better here in the states but a lot better in china, and a little bit better in europe. >> we've got to get to jim. >> because of the contrarian view, jim, is once we get a deal, we sell right into the deal. >> yeah, that's right. i'm going tonight skunk at the garden party here, and i'm geg going to tell you i never thought we'd get a deal. throwing rocks at each other. more likely we won't
that perhaps we may see some kind of stimulus in japan and china. there are still doubts when it comes to copper tp sue? >> all right, ber that, thank you very much. to the trading action on the floor of the nyse, with the dow down just about 11 points. >> there is a lot of topic on it yesterday. i think it is continuing today. let me show you the dow here in a narrow trading range. we wait to see what kind of deal. i think the street believes a deal is coming. take a look at dow jones industrial average. narrow as i gets. the big movers, industrial stocks, home building stocks, all of them are basically flat on the day. there's your dow industrials. these have big the big ones reisn'tly and home boo rerecently and the home builders on the flat side. money going into the stock market and i've seen money coming in through mutual funds too recently. stock mutual funds, money going into europe. money going into the euro and money coming out of gold and bond, sue. this is a very interesting development. it is not so relevant. gold is on the down side. >> it is worth noting. >> there is som
about china electric demand being strong. remember, they make coal machinery, depending upon how much electric demand there is in china, his orders go up. that's why i think people are surprised the stock eel not down big, given his concerns throughout the near term. >> comments, the buybacks continue. >> now, i begin to say, wait a second. one buyback, maybe -- too much coincidence here. you have the news out of joint global. i think people are starting to say this fourth quarter's an inflection point for china. less worried about inflation, more worried about pro-growth. cummins is a uniquely chinese story. so many truck engines go there. let's keep track of this. >> a lot of people say if you've got gdp growing again and inflation as low as it is, that is the sweet spot, that is where you always want to be. >> india came out with global stuff. coal, i know, we're only used to seeing coal phased out in this country. they love coal in china. i don't want to make a judgment on whether that's -- but they are huge coal plant builders there. huge. >> an important one to watch. we'll talk
forces. this is at a time when we have china with its massive force expansion, building a world capable force projection capability. we have the russians modernizing the russian forces. we still have the ranian problem totally unresolved, north korea always a flashpoint. look at the middle east. anything far from being settled there. and let me take that navy as an example, which will be illustrative of the other forces and what it will do to the nay. it will take the navy and drive it down to the smallest force it has had since prior to world war one. not world war ii, lou. world war one. lou: you know, i'm sorry, admiral. when governor romney said that, pointed that out to president obama in the debate, he was -- we had horses and bayonets, too. he seemed to make lht of that. how important is it? can you give us a sense of the impact? >> i think the president's comment is showing his inexperience in military matters. in this particular case we are going downto 220 ships. to put that number in perspective, i had 2505 ships under my command in the pacific fleet's. 20 percent of those 22
public health things being done and the rest of the world that is dominateing india and china, but in the 60's they missed. the market economies are good and they grow their economies and they are catching up. today when we land, 2010, these are the countries that borrow money to the richest when they have their problems. >> in my mind this raises two questions, or two amazing results from this. there have been thousands of years of human history and everyone was stuck on the lower left for thousands of years, it has been 200 years that you have all of this activity and how come some countries are still stuck? >> it is easy to understand. the best message today is that most of the african cntries are now in fast economic growth. they have corrected the wrong market ideas they had 20 years ago, and they have a much better education than, -- and tanzania is similar to thailand in 1972 and soon we will see african countries doing good. this is wonderful. our problems are solved w know what works and we will be rich. >>guest: no, we have this problem with two billion human beings
markets around the world were closed for christmas, and for the day after christm christmas. china, five-month high on the notion that the urbanization plan will gain spurs in the housing stocks there. japan, abe confirmed as prime minister there. the seventh prime minister in the past six years. we did see the yen hit a 20-month low against the u.s. dollar. notable lows against the euro as well. the topics in the nikkai the lowest in nine months. >> going back to his old job, that he had back in 2007. strange in and of itself. i wonder how long it will take for people to start talking about netflix after the outage going into christmas eve on social media. they were calling it no flix. and to blame amazon web services, which is one of their huge growth engines. a unit of the company they say is probably a tenth of its eventual size. >> one of the highest growth parts of amazon right now, the web services portion. their amazon is down 1.25%. i don't know if that's the reason. but it was the streaming center in northern virginia that was the source of the netflix outage. it's resolved, th
and china the biggest polluters, china is building more coal plants. how do we get them to see this issue the way we do. there is a legitimate point being made by the other side. we don't matter if the chinese continue to spew co2 in the atmosphere. how do you confront that issue. >> as you know, the chinese and other developing countries say hey, you're the rich countries you got rich polluting and you're not even willing to reduce your own emissions. now you want to stop us from doing this, and you won't help us with clean energy technologies. the answer is we need leadership. if the united states could meet its commitment that obama made, then we could go at international negotiations, and develop an agreement. i think the chinese understand that ultimately building all these coal plants is going to hurt them more than us because they've got more people. they've got a lot of people along the coast lines. they have a lot of people living in very dry arid conditions that will just get drier. they have a lot of mouths to feed and they're drawing down their aquifers. i think if the u.s. w
's not just about the u.s. they make a lot of money other places, right, phil? >> they do. china. china is huge for them and southeast asia. they're growing around the world. doesn't mean clear sailing. but it's a much healthier company than it was when it went into bankruptcy. >> michelle krk you tell me why buicks are so popular in china? >> it has a long history of strong image there. >> they're buicks. >> gm went in early. well, it's got a different image there. >> even tiger finally said i can't sell these things. >> any, appreciate it, michelle. thanks for trying to give me a straight answer. i'm sitting in the same chair i sit at in the morning. the big report on what happened in benghazi came out late last night and it seemed to go to great luns. >> they were mid level, right? >> yrks joe, they took the fall. from my information, i want to emphasize bend has been ongoing information. this state did and right now the people leaving the state department are victims of the government's need to cover up the larger story, that the security at the benghazi mission and it was a with th
in china, impact wool exports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. request a prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. >>> this is a live television feed from inside the white house. we are told the president will address the country shortly on the fiscal cliff. as we await what will be presumably a market address, let's start shuffling through where we are in a moment. we kick off with mary thompson on the floor of the new york stock exchange. mary? >> john harwood has been reporting throughout the morning and gifting lift throughout the day, the dow off 54 points and we are seeing gains in material stocks and also tech stocks getting a nice bid into today's session. you can see the gyrations in the broader market reflecting different
on housing and employment data, the global economy continues fragile with the european debt crisis and china i in in. >> rogoff is a professor of public policy and economics at harvard, he is a coauthor of the best selling book, this time is different, eight centuries of financial folly, many consider it to be the authoritative text on the impact of financial crisis around the world. i am pleased to have ken rogoff back on this program. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: let me start big, if i may. so i mean, how do you see as we enter a new year the global economy? >> well, to state the obvious, everybody is growing more slowly than they would like to, if at all. europe is basically flat, the u.s. is improving, but it is not exactly galloping and, you know, we are entering probably a weak quarter where people are hoping it will be stronger over the course of the year, china is slowing some and in general all of the emerging markets are slower than they were most of them india has slowed dramatically, brazil is slow, so yes, indeed it is a fragile situation, when the u.s. is one of the
politicians and are ready to do a deal right. we see no inflation out of china and good growth out of china. that is a positive. the-is kicking out mario munsey who has been received well by wall street. >> mcdonald's have their quarterly numbers coming out in the stock did really well during a recession. it went up over a hundred and now it is about $90 a share. pretty good numbers for them. >> i'm loving it. apple has done well and is going to the end the year with the fiscal cliff with the tax increase issues. mcdonald's not so much. their sales are up 2.4%. then about 14,100 stores and united states. they did surprisingly well with the chatter on and bacon sandwich. the keep innovating products. i know you're saying tedder bacon and onion is not innovative and someone who is walking into mcdowell said does not watch television can see that they get a soda for a dollar. this will hurt other competitors. mcdonald's is for a long-term patient investor. not for someone with diabetes ends not for some with cholesterol. >> facebook is down to 19. they have had a nice run. this whole thing wit
than 2 million in iphone 5s in china just over the last three days. that's the best ever debut for the iphone line in china. apple is china's second biggest market, although it did lose a lot of market share while they were waiting for that i5 to come out. and citi research has downgraded apple from a hold to a buy. you can see there just below $500. >>> also, the national association for business economics growth in 2013 to come in at 2.1% after growing by 2.2% in 2012. that would continue the same tepid growth that the country has seen since the recession ended back in mid 2009. >>> and the nation is mourning the horrific event of friday in newtown, connecticut. president obama spoke last night about change. >> we can't kol rate this any more. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. no single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or event every senseless act of violence in our society. >>> and earlier in the day, new york city mayor michael bloomberg called on th
